BUFFALO -- Jose Dejesus, 35, of Buffalo, who was convicted of possession with intent to distribute heroin and being a felon-in-possession of ammunition, was sentenced to 46 months in prison by U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul C. Parisi, who handled the case, stated that on November 10, 2016, Buffalo Police officers executed a search warrant at 224 Virginia Street. After entering the residence, officers found the defendant in the rear bedroom. Officers recovered 16 envelopes containing heroin, 17 pieces of paper containing cocaine, and a plastic bag of marijuana. Officers also found a digital scale and packaging materials in the rear bedroom as well as a 12-gauge shotgun and ammunition. Dejesus was convicted in state court of a felony in 2003 and is prohibited from legally possessing ammunition.

The sentencing is the result of an investigation by the Buffalo Police Department, under the direction of Commissioner Daniel Derenda and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, under the direction of Special Agent-in-Charge Ashan Benedict, New York Field Division.
